What is a repossessed property?

Nedbank green tick

When a homeowner is in financial difficulty, unable to meet their bond payments and all our attempts at payment rehabilitation have failed, Nedbank is left with no option but to repossess the home.

In selling the home to another buyer, our main objective is to offer financial relief for the previous property owner, while recovering the outstanding debt on the home loan account.
